Real Madrid took first points in La Liga. After the dramatic come-back against Real Betis, Zidane met with journalists. Real Madrid got a penalty while Betis player was sent off for unsportsmanlike play.


What happened was fair

The very first question for Zidane was about the VAR controversy. Even Barcelona’s defender, Puyol posted that referees are helping Los Blancos. Barcelona’s legendary player noted that the Catalonian team has to play ‘really good’ to win La Liga. Zidane got questions about VAR, penalty at the end of the match and red card. 

Zinedine Zidane handled the questions in a very calm manner. Coach noted that the referee went to the VAR section, he reviewed the moment and decided that it was a fault in the penalty area. Zidane said that when there is a case for a penalty, why does the referee have to be bullied? Especially when Real Madrid is playing. French coach said that what happened to Real Madrid in Seville was very fair.

Zinedine Zidane is satisfied with team’s performance

The Real Madrid coach is very happy with the outcome. French legend said that Los Blancos players did everything to win the game. They fought for every inch and they deserved three points. 

Zidane said that Courtois was on another level. Just like the Sociedad game, Courtois saves Los Blancos in Seville too. Real Betis had many real moments, especially in the first half of the match. The Sevillian team could not go past the Courtois defense. The skills and reaction that Courtois has shown against Real Betis was impressive.

Los Blancos coach said that Luka Jovic and Benzema will play many matches together. As you know, Luka suffered a lot in the previous season. Serbian striker did not get many chances last season as Karim was on top of the competition. Against Real Betis, Luka started the match from the very first minute.
